Episode Four Excerpt:

“Tonight is about us, no one else, and that’s the way I want it to stay. No more interruptions,” Derek said.

I took a deep breath and reached for my wine. I wasn’t going to let my brain jump to conclusions. This weekend was about us. Not Taylor. Not Reed. “I agree.”

He leaned into the table, his hand moving higher up my leg. “Kiss me.”

We weren’t in a back booth, and this restaurant wasn’t nearly as private as The Hole. There were more servers, a more open floor plan, many other tables close by. What he was asking for was much more than the peck I had given him before I’d gone to the bathroom. “Those fingers,” I said, placing my hand on top of them, “aren’t planning on going any higher, are they?”

He licked his bottom lip, teasing me with just the swipe of his tongue and the whiskers that surrounded it. “They weren’t, no. But now that I know it’s on your mind, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop them.”

“I want to give you all of me.”

Unfortunately this series is drawing to a close, this is the penultimate instalment and after reading I really do not want this series to end. Sometimes an author has that knack of endearing her characters to you and this is one classic example.

Over the months I have become extremely attached to Derek and Frankie and as their story comes to its conclusion Marni Mann does not tamper down the pace. The suspense aspect is ramping up full throttle, lots of questions are answered but quite a few still remain keeping you well and truly invested in this story. Not one of these instalments has been a filler and all have had a very important part to play.

“I wanted her skin under my lips, her scent filling my nose. I needed to taste my pink ivory.”

In this instalment we delve a bit deeper into Derek’s past and we do find out the driving force behind his and Hayden’s insistence on bringing Randy down. But the past has a nasty habit of bringing problems with it and this episode is no different.

Frankie really finds herself in a quandary in this instalment, she is constantly battling her conscience between work and a relationship...could she actually have both? I wanted to bash her sometimes in this instalment, for a confident woman sometimes she just did not believe in herself and after everything she has worked for she really needed to look in the mirror and see herself for the amazingly strong person she actually was.

“Yes, I want you, Frankie – more than I’ve ever wanted anyone. I think about you; I hunger for you. I’m weakened by you. I don’t believe you have to make a choice.”

The hot tub scene...OMG...Marni Mann always delivers those scenes and as usual this one doesn’t disappoint, my only niggle was that I wanted more!! Not often I scream for more of those scenes! These two have such an intense connection that I love it when we get to see that side of their relationship and when Frankie is in flannel you cannot help but melt.

I cannot wait for Episode 5, this is one of the best serials I have read so far, each instalment has been captivating and delivered quickly, no long waits between reads. I cannot wait to see where Marni Mann takes this going forward. Although it is bittersweet, as much as I want to read it, I really do not want their story to end.
